If you need to open it you can put a paperclip in the small hole next to the button and push. This should open the tray enough so that you call pull the rest out

My ps3 has been fine for over a year and now when i put a disc in it starts to read then it makes a click like your putting the disc in again and then it dont load


Ok ill tell you what you need to do,
1 try putting a standard music cd in the ps3 and see if that will play.
if it plays you need to get the bluray player replaced.
if it wont play music cd or standard dvd then this points to the fact either you have a dusty laser leans or it could mean the laser has give up and you need the whole drive replacing.

try going to hardware store and buying a cd leans cleaning cd and run this in your ps3 to remove any dust do this before taking your ps3 apart.

if you have any warranty left dont take it apart if your warranty has ran out ill tell you what to do.

first of all you need to take the case off the ps3 use google and type in how to repair ps3 then hit search this will list sites that tell you and show you how to take the ps3 apart doing this voids your warranty and will reduce the price when you come to sell it.
2 once its apart take out the dvd drive its held in only by 2 wires you pull the power wire out of the circuit board and tilt the drive to the right giving you access to the data ribbon you then need to undo the clip holding the data ribbon to the circuit board
3 now you have the dvd drive out take a not of what make and model it is then have a look on the auction site and buy the exact same type.

4 now you cant just replace the whole dvd drive with a new one as the dvd drive in your ps3 will only work with your ps3 so a new drive will not work on its won so you need to do the following.

5 remove the 4 screws from the bottom of the dvd drive if the circuit board is not visible on the bottom of the drive, if the circuit board is visible then undo the screws holding the circuit board to the dvd drive and then undo the data ribbons that run from the laser to this circuit board, once you have undone these make sure you dont break the thin black and red wire that is pushed into the dvd drive motor once this is uncliped you can remove this circuit board from the dvd drive

6 now when the new drive comes you need to repeat the process and take out the circuit board on the new drive and replace it with the circuit board from your old drive, doing this is the only way you can replace the drive without paying 150 toy sony to flash the firmware on the ps3 and the new drive so swapping this circuit board gets round this and allows you to do the repair yourself, if you dont swap this part over it wont work when you put it all back together you will just get a load of error so swapping this circuit board over is important.

you will also need a special start shaped tool to undo the bolt under the warranty sticker and rubber bung at one end of the ps3 once you have undone this screw it will allow you to slide the top off revealing all the screw you need to undo, now thats the easy part replacing the circuit board on the dvd drive is very fiddly so take your time and get it right.


if you need any further assistance give me a shout back as i repair these day in day out so i can more or less do it in my sleep, if you get stuck or need help give me a shout back and ill be glad to assist you further ok

please dont attempt this repair if you are unsure or dont mind the chance of doing more harm, its not easy to do and can be a nightmare if you get mixed up or lose parts, if you have any warranty left go on the sony site and lodge for repair, this may be covered by up to 3 years so check on the official ps3 site to find out if you have any warranty left.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Dvd tray will not open all the time but when it does it wont read disc like nothing is in it at all its a benq type dvd can i swap it out and put my older dvd hitachi in its place or is there some ez fix...


hi, you know when you press the open button and it jams you know as soon as you press the button you hear it make a noise then jam well as soon as it jams if you press the tray in quickly then let go as if your pushing it in like a button it should then open on its own.
so you press the eject button and it should come out a tiny bit before it jams well as soon as it jams push it in and let go and usually it will open.

another known trick with benq drives is when you switch the xbox on wait for it to come on fully then press the eject button on the xbox now when it jams dont try pressing it again wait for the xbox dvd drive to stop making a noise and when it resting again if you press the eject button again it should come open

right now as for replacing the dvd drive if you swap out the benq and put in any other such as hitachi you will need to hack the drive to work doing this bans you from xbox live and certain updates will stop your xbox working ever again so it is a bit of a risk, as long as you dont install any updates you will be ok but you will need to hack the software on the new drive and thats not easy as you need to have it connected to the xbox for power and connect the sata connection into your pc so you can then put the new software on.

the other option you have is buying another benq drive the same as yours for the well known auction site, now even this is not just a case of putting the new dvd drive in what you have to do is undo the 4 screws on the bottom of your dvd drive and take off the top and bottom case, then if you look at the bottom of the dvd drive you will see a circuit board well you need to take this off your dvd drive and fit it onto the new benq drive without doing this the new drive would not work as your dvd drive is married with software to your xbox so it will only work in your xbox so swapping this control board over gets around this and will get it working again.

the problem with it not opening is to do with a white rubber drive belt slipping this causes the mechanism inside not to drop down properly causing it to jam so if you are having real problems getting it open even with the ways i have told you then take the dvd drive out undo the 4 screws on the bottom of the dvd drive then pull the top and bottom half off and give the belts a good clean and get all the dust out as this causes them to slip.

Xbox 360 is playing dvds but not games


Hi the problem is with your laser the chances are it needs adjusting so it will read the games again now the problem with this is that their are 5 or 6 different dvd drives for the xbox and only a couple can be adjusted but you wont know this till you find out what drive you have.

if the xbox is less than 3 years old its covered by warranty even if you dont have the receipt so have a look on the back of your xbox and check the date if its less than 3 years old go onto the xbox website and log a repair claim they will then come out and give you a working console and take yours back with them.

if its more than 3 years old or it has been opened before then you have got no warranty and you will either need to do the work yourself which involves taking the case off and taking the dvd drive out to find out what make it is, to do this you will need special screw drivers to undo the screws to find out what you need use google and search for xbox 360 repair guide, dont pay for a guide their are loads of free ones on the net, then once you have the case off you need to remove the dvd drive and check the make then using google again type in the following how to adjust the laser on a (give make here) then hit search.

if it can be adjusted you will need a multimeter to do this so you can get the reading off the pots you need to adjust,

now with the dvd once you have it out undo the 4 screws in the bottom then pull the top and bottom case off it, then if the laser is right at the other end and not by the middle of the disk then all you need to do to solve the problem is slide the laser back down the shaft so that its in the middle again near the part that spins the disk round, sometimes the laser moves to far up its runner and gets jammed so this may be the case with yours if the laser is right up the other end far away from the middle then just push it back to the middle and put it all back together and it will then work.

if how ever the laser is at the middle when you take it off then this means either it needs adjusting if it can be adjusted or it needs replacing.

if it cant be adjusted then this means you need to get another dvd drive you need to get one thats the same make as the one you have all ready got,

once you have got another drive you need to swap over the control board off your faulty dvd drive and put this onto the new one without doing this the new drive wont work at all.

your dvd drive is programmed to only work with your xbox so just fitting a whole new drive wont work you need to take the casing off your dvd drive and look at the bottom and you will see a small circuit board this is the control board you then need to unclip the wires and ribbons and remove the board from your dvd drive, now on the new drive you need to take the control board off that as its no good to you at all and put your old control board onto the new dvd drive then put it all back together and it will then be fully working.

if you are unsure what you are doing then please dont try it as you can cause more damage if you break any of the data ribbons,

i fix these for £25 so if you need someone else to do it just shop around and see what price you can get.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Plays dvd but not games


When you replaced the DVD drive did you swap the circuit board (on the bottom of the DVD drive when you open it up).

Every DVD drive is "paired" with the Xbox 360, so you need to open up the DVD drives, and swap the green circuit boards on the bottom of the DVD drives. Should work after this.
